We are proud and grateful at this time to be able to offer critiques of manuscripts-in-progress from some of the most accomplished and respected American writers today. 

As you will see, the precise nature of the price and scheduling, as well as the type of manuscript and response each author can undertake, will vary from writer to writer. Please be sure before you purchase a critique that you understand the details of the offering. 

The actual sale begins at 8 a.m. PST on November 25, 2014. Jump in early so you're not shut out! And many thanks for your generous support of CAREGIFTED.
